MAN Diesel and MV Werften Equips Cruise Ships for Star Cruises

Thursday / November 17, 2016


MAN Diesel & Turbo and MV Werften have concluded a contract to equip two “Global Class” cruise ships for Star Cruises. With a registered tonnage (RT) of 200,000 tons each, the ships will be some of the largest on the market and will each be equipped with six type 48/60CR engines with a combined output of 96,000 kW.

The ships are scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2021. The customer and recipient of these ocean-going giants, which will operate in China and all over Asia, is the “Star Cruises” brand of Genting Hong Kong. Genting Hong Kong has been active in the cruise business for 23 years and recently launched its new luxury cruise line brand “Dream Cruises – The Most Luxury Asian Cruise Line” with two 150,000 RT ships – the “Genting Dream” delivered this month and “World Dream” to be delivered next year, both equipped with MAN engines.

Genting Hong Kong also owns “Crystal Cruises – The Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line in the World”. This year, the company bought German shipyards in Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund and now operates them as the shipyard group MV Werften. This strategic step was taken to secure the company’s expansion plans in the growth markets of South-East Asia and China and in the global market for luxury cruise ships.
